Named the best US real estate investment of the past decade, discover how more UK investors are entering self storage investment
The UK’s self storage industry has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years and its simple concept has triumphed throughout the economic downturn. The industry’s business model has enticed commercial property investors and has become a low entry option for property investors.
Over the pond in the USA, Bloomberg has named self storage investment as the best real estate investment of the past decade, stating that the industry ‘produced the best risk-adjusted return among 10 U.S. real estate investment trust indexes.’
The Bloomberg Riskless Return Ranking also stated that ‘self storage investment had the highest total return and the third-lowest volatility, for a risk-adjusted gain of 10.6%’.

Mirroring the success of the US market, the popularity of self storage investment is also on the rise in the UK. An increase of online presence has helped boost enquiries and bookings from end users, with one leading UK storage company stating that 80% of all its customers check websites before making contact.
The increased awareness of storage facilities has led to a rise in demand from consumers and businesses in the UK. Gone are the days where moving house or converting a loft space meant a clear out of personal possessions. Easily accessible storage units have enabled people to store their much-loved items in a safe and secure unit with 24 hour security.
What’s more, low cost rentals and flexible tenancies have attracted businesses in need of storage, with many larger units used as warehouses to cut overhead costs.
